ABC

Toby Leigh has got your adult alphabet down and its a barrell of mischievous laughs. It’s a parody of the classic 1970s children’s ABC books from yesteryear, but the childlike words - Dog, Queen, Apple etc have been twisted into sinister adult themes through the illustrations.

 

Toby made a little promo film which you can watch on the crowdfunding page.

London Zoo!

ELLO, ELLO, ELLO what have we here? Some rather cheeky chappies from charming folk illustrator Margaux Carpentier for London Zoo - be sure to spot her murals there too. She has such an individual style that sets her apart from other folk illustrators, crossing the boundaries of painting into the lands of graphic vectors - we can't get enough of these cute guys. Thanks Margaux, you've cheered us right up.

Words With Sisters

Tatiana Boyko employs an unusually muted colour pallette for The Boston Globe Magazine. Adding detail with small brushes of texture and delicate shading Tatiana brings this touching scene to life : having once lived together with fond memories playing scrabble on the porch, the story follows two sisters that play scrabble on their phone to stay in touch and stay connected.

Zesty

The wonderful folky tones of Aitch span far and wide, decorating packaging in bespoke florals and winding vines, covering billboards with cheerful characters and playful patterns. There's been a lot cooking for Aitch behing closed doors that we can soon reveal (hold tight). Meanwhile to keep your appetites satisfied we're sending you some juicy vine oranges. Sumptuous and satisfying - full of zest and great for colds. Just beware of the sneaky snake...
